How to Find Deleted Facebook Pages

By Marina Martin

When a Facebook page is deleted, it’s not necessarily gone for good. The Internet has a long memory, and there are multiple ways to locate a deleted Facebook page if you—or a potential boss—are curious enough. If you’ve deleted your Facebook page by mistake, or later changed your mind, you can also use these methods to recover your data and create a new one.

Things You'll Need

  • Internet

Step 1

Check the Internet Archive at "www.archive.org." The website specializes in retaining old copies of various websites, called cached pages.

Step 2

Check Google’s cache by searching the following string on Google: Site:facebook.com “Your Name”If any results appear, click the “Cached” link under the result to see Google’s saved copy of it.

Step 3

Check Bing’s cache by searching the following string on Bing: Site:facebook.com “Your Name”If any results appear, click the “Cached page” link under the result to see Bing’s saved copy of it.

Step 4

Check Yahoo’s cache by searching the following strong on Yahoo.com: Site:facebook.com “Your Name"If any results appear, click the “Cached” link under the result to see Yahoo’s saved copy of it.

Tips & Warnings

  • If no results appear, try modifying the phrase you put for "Your Name” to a different string, like including your middle initial or middle name (or someone else's name). You can also try listing keywords without the quotation marks; the quotation marks tell the engine to search for exactly the words inside them in exactly that order.
